1Spatial, a global leader in Location Master Data Management (LMDM) software and solutions, announced that, in collaboration with Esri UK, it has signed a multi-year contract with Gas Distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), to deliver the UK’s first enterprise migration to Esri’s new ArcGIS Utility Network model.

The total contract value, which will predominantly fall into the Company’s financial year ending 31 January 2022 (FY22), is in excess of £1m, of which the recurring revenue element is expected to be over £0.2m.

1Spatial’s platform, including its 1Integrate tools, will be deployed to conduct the data quality audit, data cleanse and enhancement to ensure the data is fit for migration to the new model, which will be implemented in the ArcGIS Utility Network.

The new ArcGIS Utility Network data model allows utilities to create true digital twins of their network and build real-world behaviours into the features they model. The project will allow NGN to unlock even greater value from its data. In turn this will improve NGN’s operational efficiency, move further towards a preventative approach to asset management and provide greater insight into customer impacts. This project helps towards NGN’s aim to continually improve the service delivered to 2.7 million homes and businesses across the North of England.

In line with 1Spatial’s strategy, this project is a repeatable solution for utility providers across all territories.

Commenting on the collaboration, 1Spatial CEO, Claire Milverton, said: "We are delighted to expand our relationship with Northern Gas Networks and to collaborate with Esri UK to deliver the UK’s first Utility Network Migration project utilising ArcGIS and 1Integrate. The project will enhance the quality and completeness of NGN’s data, allowing the organisation to unlock the vast benefits of next generation technologies as they lead the way to deliver on their Digitalisation Strategy goals. The contract highlights the potential expansion opportunities in the utilities sector and exemplifies the breadth and depth of 1Spatial’s capabilities as a leader in data management and migrations.”
